[texts]ERIC ED208037: Examining the Effects of Incentives on the Return Rates of Mailed Surveys. - ERIC
Although the mail survey is an efficient method for collecting data, its major disadvantage of nonresponse bias is reflected in the number of studies conducted investigating the effects of incentives to increase response rates. Linsky (1975) reviewed studies investigating the use of incentives to increase mailed return rates and found inconsistencies regarding the efficacy of various incentives. The present study used two different approaches in an attempt to resolve inconsistencies found among ...

[texts]ERIC ED300870: Interpretive Approaches to Understanding Organizations: Implications for Researchers. - ERIC
Despite growing interest in the use of anthropological or cultural research models, these approaches are not commonly understood by the higher education community. Because anthropological research differs significantly from other techniques, this paper first explains the rationale for using anthropological models to study higher education and defines a cultural approach. The paper then discusses how interpretive research diverges from the objectivist approach...

[texts]ERIC ED384676: Combination of Conditional Log-Linear Structures. Program Statistics Research. - ERIC
There has been increasing attention to the fine structure of abilities underlying task performance (E. H. Haertel and D. E. Wiley). One of the most useful approaches for this is by use of graphical models to represent relationships among abilities and test items. Building a large graphical model is always an issue. Restrictions upon experiments and data collection, among others, may result in parts of the large model...

In 1993, tail buffet tests were performed on a full-scale, production model F/A-18 in the 80 x 120-foot Wind Tunnel at NASA Ames Research Center. Steady and unsteady pressures were recorded on both sides of the starboard vertical tail for an angle-of-attack range of 20 to 40 degrees and at a sideslip range of -1 6 to 16 degrees at freestream velocities up to 100 knots (Mach 0.15, Reynolds number 1.23 x 10(exp 7)...

Rather than presenting each research design component in isolation, the model emphasizes their interrelationships. A brief discussion is presented on each of the following components of the model: (1) the "words" of research design--concepts, constructs, variables, and operational definitions; (2) observations and data collection--issues related to subject selec...

Inferences made in integrative research reviews are as important to the validity of behavioral science knowledge as are those in primary research. The research review is conceptualized as a scientific inquiry involving five stages paralleling those of primary research. Problem formulation is the stage when variables are defined conceptually and operationally. In the data collection stage, an inquirer must decide on the population of elements that will be the referent for the inquiry...

The educational audit is suggested for assessing the process of inquiry for reliability and the product of inquiry for absence of bias. The inquiry auditor must review the inquiry processes to determine that they conform to norms of "good professional practice." He must review inquiry products to ensure they can be substantiated from data collected. These tasks are equivalent to establishing the dependability of an inquiry and the confirmability of its data and conclusions...
